AREAS in the city are still without water, although Sol Plaatje Municipality stated on Monday morning that all work on the bulk and reticulation water supply lines had been completed.

Municipal spokesperson Sello Matsie said a team was working on the last site in Edgerton Road near the Halfway House.

“Work is 90 percent complete, with only the bend outstanding to boost the pressure in the area. The bend will be installed once all areas have received water. We will not need to interrupt the water supply to complete the work,” said Matsie.

He added that the supply from Riverton had resumed.

“The system is busy recharging until all areas have water. The team is out at the Riverton Purification Plant, monitoring the supply pressure as we are receiving complaints of non-supply of water. No leaks are present on the supply lines and all valves on the lines are being manually inspected to ensure that they open. Full water supply restoration is our priority at the moment.

“The Sol Plaatje Municipality would like to thank residents for their co-operation and patience throughout the interruption,” Matsie stated.
